What's news this week in Crittenden County...

The community – or the small percentage who voted – is not ready to foot the bill for a new school in Crittenden County at this time. On Tuesday, voters from across the county soundly defeated a measure that would have increased the school property tax rate by almost 6 cents to build a new high school and take the 68-year-old middle school out of circulation. The ballot measure lost 1,485 votes to 649.
